    @dagger, I think collectively we put the deftones in the top ten with that 1.6%, psyched for both palace shows. Good to see TGI up there too. Not a fan of any of the other bands really and atlas is yet to blow my mind but hopefully seeing them on satday might change that

    So out of EVERY album to come out in 2012…in the whole world…In hearts wake beat everyone. Go home KYS, you’re drunk

    I’m a massive Parkway fan, but I’m very surprised to see Atlas in the top 10. It was a weak album. Crooked teeth was far better and deserves to be higher. Disappointed Far West Battlefront didn’t make it into the 10 either :/

    No Every time I die? Twelve foot ninja would have to be the shittest band of all time.
    Apart from that it’s a far better top ten than last year.
    Bravo

    Apart from Deftones that would be my TEN WORST ALBUMS of 2012 list right there. I cant believe anyone that has grown pubes listens to Parkway Drive, Amity Affliction or House v Hurricane. Those bands alone encompass everything thats wrong with modern heavy music. I’m gonna put Slayer on and forget I read this..

    @juggalo (11): Juggs mate, how are PWD and Amity on the list every year when they don’t release albums every year.
    You’re telling lies pal.
    Stop telling lies.
